    A few people including myself made the connection a while back and was stated that if tlk taught us anything codenames. are frequently used between both companies so for movie the best destroyer was used and I don't think its a coincidence.

    I hope they didn't retool him with a permanent neck.

    Well, I guess we know what the remold of Nitro is supposed to be. Hopefully Skywarp will be next.

    Unfortunately I haven't found the first half or most of the second half I only found 12 - 15
    Which to my knowledge don't reveal anything major like a potentially new shockwave or Soundwave. 12 - 15 were jazz , Bonecrusher , tlk Megatron and lockdown.

    Nothing concrete besides energon igniters and a codename bluelight that sounds very police related if you ask me.

    I brought up energon igniters because of there mv6 label so it may lead to something.

    I was just thinking of that actually. If that's the intent then I applaud them for making a cleaver homage of that version of the character.

    Now I want to see that Skywarp idea happen. :)

    that feels REALLY out of place and random in this line.
    and that head is dang weird, even by Bayverse standards.

    But Studio Series does have a voyager Ironhide coming up, and a decent possibility of a leader Jetfire. And this guy is just an exclusive isn't he?

    He looks neat and a pick up for sure because I like both Thundercracker as a character and cause Nitro Zeus is just an awesome figure.

    And going on past experience this will probably turn out easier to obtain then any of their Marvel Legend exclusives (Scarlet Witch/Vision, Hydra).

    Is it bad that i would love to see a exclusive like this but it would be Tankor or the brown tank drone from Dotm From the new Brawl.
    Anyways this is a buy for me just from how unique the head is.
